closes the gap but behind in state polls. >> romney ahead by one or two points. >> is romney leads. bye-bye!
mitt romney as a bain capital capitalist, driving the unfavorables up, especially in the swing states and mitt romney, last night, came across as a person of capability, of vision and who knows what is best for america. i think that was really the most important part of that whole debate. >> greta: what do you think happened to president obama? historically, he has given speeches that have been dazzling. he has been very successful on the campaign trail. i don't need to tell but that. what happened last night? >> i think he spent four years in a bubble with an adoring media. meanwhile, mitt romney's been going through this very tough grind, wing the nomination, as you know. but i also think that the president... maybe he's a little too sure of himself and probably may not have taken mitt seriously enough. i guarantee you, the next time around, he will be taking him seriously. >> greta: you know, in watching him, you know, it certainly didn't look like the president was having any fun. he certainly seemed that he was just watching -- i am watching from the outside, i don't know when he
president of united states, mitt romney. [cheers and applause] ♪ [playing "born free"] ♪ >> that is one heck of a virginia welcome. thank you, virginia. [cheers and applause] you, paul. does the music just bring up your day? [applause] then he for the endorsement of the -- we appreciate the endorsement of the nra. [applause] last night was an important night for the country. [cheers and applause] they got the chance to cut through all the attacks and counterattacks and all the theatrics associate with the campaign and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very dif

battleground states, romney sought to rejuvenate his campaign with an attack on what he called president obama's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am concerned the path we're on has been unsuccessful. the president has a view to one similar when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government spending more, taxing more, regulating more -- a trickle- down government -- would work. that is not the right answer for america. >> president obama was more subdued in his comments, failing to make one mention of romney's infamous 47%, and his background of bain capital. addressing romney's tax plan, obama said romney's effort to cut taxes for the wealthy would be to the gutting of essential government programs. box for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan. five weeks before the election, now he is saying his big, bold idea is, "never mind." the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you described, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high-income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle

states am mitt romney want to cut taxes for rich guys. mr. romney said mr. president, that is not the case. >> i know you and your running mate keep saying that and it is popular to say. but it is not the case. i have five boys and i am used to people saying something that is not always true and keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i will believe it. that is not the case. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> gretchen: it was interesting how mitt romney was on the offensive and this is what republicans had critized him for in the past. take it to the president and get out there and be more aggressive in your answers and you say that side of mitt romney because the president would say something. and mitt romney would say no, that is not my plan. here it is. point number one and point two and three. the president also did this. but that was great to narrow it down in simplification of points one, two, and three. >> steve: he had a plan. >> the president also did it. but it was more compelling for mitt romney to do this because he was critiz

in the swing state of colorado. governor romney said that he would honor work visas that certain young illegal immigrants obligated through an executive order by president obama. you will recall that the governor has taken an aggressive stand on immigration in this campaign. in fact, he said he would actually veto legislation that provided a path to citizen to some immigrants. governor romney said and i quote, "the people who received the special visa the president has put if place which is a two-year vision 10 should expect the visa will continue to be valid. i will not take something they have purchased o now, live to carl cameron. is this a change, carl, or a change of emphasis for the governor? >>carl: change of emphasis. in colorado, latino are an influential voting block the he has been polling in the low 30's and even high 20 but most g.o.p. strategists says to be competitive nationally he has to get 40 percent of the that tomorrow vote. he is not close. the emphasis is he will not do what in his words he said, there will not be roundups of people being deported. he was reluctant to say

to take their jobs out of the united states. mr. romney says he has never heard of that law before. i think that is why the president looked so incredulous in terms of his response. there are incentives to take jobs out of the country. laypeople like me even know that. that is another part of him being disingenuous where he was way off the mark. host: any response to that? caller: the bible says this. if a nation will please got a, everything turns out right. all you have to do is please god. barack obama has not pleased god. he is involved in the homosexuality. he gave money for abortions. god and everything we have. he owns it all. he controls at all. all we have to do is please god and everything will turn out good. host: thank you for participating this morning. we appreciate it. lead editorial in "the washington times" -- now, in just a minute we are going to switch of the phone lines a little bit as we go. in just a minute we will change them. we will take two more calls. we will talk to linda from texas and carl from kansas. after that we want to hear from swing state voters on
romney did a good thing working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and as a consequence people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed jobs. and as a consequence we now have a system in which we have the opportunity to start bringing down costs as opposed to just leaving millions of people out in the cold. >> lehrer: your five seconds went away a long time ago. (laughter) all right governor, tell the president directly why you think what he just said is wrong about obamacare? >> well, i did with my first statement but i'll go on. >> please elaborate. >> i'll elaborate. you're exactly right. first of all i like the way we did in the massachusetts. i like the fact that in my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. as a matter of fact, when massachusetts did something quite extraordinary, elected a republican senator to stop obamacare, you pushed it through anyway. so instead of bringing america together and having a discussion on this
. it means that governor romney is talked about medicaid and how we could send it back to the states but effectively this means a 30% cut in the primary program we help for seniors who are in nursing homes, for kids who are with disabilities. >> lehrer: mr. president, i'm sorry -- >> that's not a right strategy for us to move forward. >> lehrer: way over the two minutes. >> sorry. >> lehrer: governor, what about simpson bowles? will you support simpson-bowles? >> simpson-bowles, the president should have grabbed that. >> pelley:>> lehrer: do you sup? >> i have my own plan. in my view the president should have grabbed it. if you wanted to make adjustments to it take it, go to congress, fight for it. >> that's what we've done. made adjustments and we're putting it before congress right now. $4 trillion plan. >> you've been president four years. you said you'd cut the deficit in half, it's four years later, we have trillion dollar deficits. the c.b.o. says we'll have a trillion dollar deficit the next four years. if you're reelected we'll get to a trillion dollar debt. you said before y

? >> if winning the debate is doing a good job in terms -- because these are performances. it was mitt romney. he was prepared. he was aggressive. he was straightforward. he looked at president obama and standing on the same stage and holding his own. this is the president of the united states in itself is a victory. president obama had a debate with romney and romney seemed very, as i said, prepared and aggressive to the point of not being offensive. >> let me ask you, as i watch tonight and also sort of watched twitter and other things, we heard one of the feedback that someone says. they thought it seemed like romney pivoted hard on taxes, wall street. do you think that may have unsettled president obama, throwing him off his game tonight? >> i don't think the president who has a reputation may be having a thin skin, that did not succeed. the president was composed. he was his natural, cool, disposition. he smiled. he didn't sigh. he didn't look at his watch. he didn't do any of the things that were disturbing or distracting. but he just took the slings and arrows of romney. sometimes he cou
crossroads to deliver that ad and to run it in the swing states, but i think it'd be a mistake for mitt romney to do that tonight. he -- the best line he's had all campaign was barack obama promised you that he'd stop the seas from rising and heal the earth, i want to help you and your family. what he needs to add tonight, and here's how, and get into -- and i know they think they've done specifics, but the american people have not heard 'em. if he goes in tonight and does another bunch of bashing obama on what's wrong with the obama economy, people who believe that have already figured that out. they're looking to him for, okay, great, how are you going to help me and my family, and tell me. don't say -- and he also talked in the sort of the american people, let me tell the american people what i want to do. tell them what you're going to do for each one of them, i mean, for their family, for you and your family. the way he expressed it at the debate. if he loses that tonight, if he misses that by trying to make people like him or trying to bash obama even further into the ground, i do
: the latest poll shows obama up 1 point in your state. 1 point. he needs -- governor romney needs to win florida. why do you think he's not higher? >> the governor? it's going to be a close race. flares always close. remember 2000? even in 2008 walt advantages barack obama tbhilt he only won by handful of points in 2008. i think every election will be very close in these states because of the nature of american politics these days and how it many broken out demographically and people's political preferences. we expect to be close until the end. people have known barack obama for four years. this is a state he won. the fund amount tall question is why isn't he leading by more? and he's not because his promises have failed america because the middle class has been buried the last four years and we can do so much better than this. megyn: i think we have the comment cued up. take a listen. >> this is deadly earnest, man, this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they just
investment in schools and education. governor romney talk about medicaid and how we can send it back to the states. that means a 30% cut in the primary program we held for seniors in nursing homes, kids with disabilities. that is not a right strategy for us to move forward. >> what about some some goals -- simpsons-bowles? >> i have my own plans. if you want to make adjustments, take it. go to congress and fight for it. >> that is what we have done. >> you have been present for four years. he said he would cut the deficit in half. we still have trillion dollar deficits. if you are reelected, we will get to a trillion dollar debt. you have said he will cut the deficit in half. you find $4 trillion in cuts. we still show trillion dollar deficit a year. that does not get the job done. why is it that i do not want to raise taxes? i do not want to raise taxes on people. in 2010, he said he would extend the tax policies we have now and not raise taxes because when the economy is going so like this, you should not raise taxes on anyone. the economy is still going slow. it is growing more sl
for governor romney. no big surprises, no real mistakes, no gas, no outstanding zingers. i think romney is poised. he did what he did it to do. he's behind in the battle ground states and deceptive with attacking the president. this is pretty much a good night for him. he avoided the pitfalls. president obama, social security, medicare, medicaid and he avoided it. >> what do you think viewers are looking for in tonight's debate? >> i think voters look what they are looking for. and voters have an opportunity to compare the two candidates, basically saying, someone representing me, my values, my family, my interest. if you like obama coming in, no big surprise coming out. he spoke your language. he appealed your interest and values. if you like romney, it's a good night. i don't think the debate creates that much drama or interest in the voting population. >> cory, thanks so much for your perspective. we will see much more of you throughout the election season. thanks for being with us. >> there's a lot of response about the debate in the facebook page. cat u allen. >>> next thursday, it

ads going after the president both on things like the deficit, but talking more about mitt romney's own plans for reform and so they're trying to bulk up their presence out there in the the swing states and really grab this momentum and then they've also of course, got to have a good rest of the remaining debates. no one should forget, john kerry had a good opening debate in 2004 and went on to lose the election and they're aware of that. and he's got to keep this image rolling with the public. >> paul: okay, much more ahead on this week's presidential debate. including mitt romney's takedown of obamacare, a topic he's largely avoided on the campaign trail. so, why the change of heart? tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about that 401(k) you picked up back in the '80s. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like a lot of things, the market has changed, tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 and your plans probably have too. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at charles schwab, we'll give you personalized recommendations tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 on how to reinvest that old 401(k). tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 so talk to chuck tdd#: 1-800-345-255
